Japan Coast Guard Selects Dassault Aviation’s Falcon 2000 Maritime Surveillance Aircraft After an International Competition
Saint-Cloud, France
4/22/2015

The Japan Coast Guard (JCG) has selected the Falcon 2000 Maritime Surveillance Aircraft (MSA) proposed by Dassault Aviation to enhance its operational fleet.
 
The Falcon 2000 MSA, based on a Falcon 2000 LXS (range 4000 NM), is designed for a broad range of missions including maritime surveillance, piracy control, drug interdiction, fishery patrol, law enforcement, search and rescue, intelligence and reconnaissance.  It offers the best combination of size, payload, speed, range and acquisition and operating costs on the market.
 
“This acquisition comes after an international competition won by Dassault Aviation. It is a new milestone in the long standing relationship between Dassault Aviation and the Japan Coast Guard.  We are honored by this renewed confidence,” said Eric Trappier, Chairman and CEO of Dassault Aviation. “Japan has successfully operated Falcon jets for maritime surveillance and search and rescue around the Japanese archipelago since 1989 and we are extremely honored that, once again, the Japan Coast Guard has chosen to renew its confidence in our aircraft”.
 
By acquiring modern and efficient new maritime surveillance mid size jets, JCG will be equipped with a highly capable and cost effective platform developed with our partners L-3 Platform Integration and THALES.
 
Dassault Aviation will also provide the JCG with comprehensive maintenance support capabilities allowing the JCG to achieve a high level of aircraft availability. These support capabilities will enable the aircraft to efficiently meet the demanding operational requirements of the JCG.
 
As a major manufacturer of advanced combat aircraft, Dassault Aviation has a solid reputation in Naval Aviation having developed several aircraft dedicated to maritime missions.  The Falcon family has been very successful in the governmental market and this selection of the Falcon 2000 MSA confirms its capability to fulfill the most exacting customer needs.
